My new carbon quad frame: SG Adventure

About two months ago, I posted a picture of my broken quad frame. As mentioned in the post, I started developing a new one, more durable frame. I had certain requirements for the new frame:

  • Durable and light
  • Looks stylish and good
  • Enough space for GoPro and FPV-Equipment
  • Easy for transport: frame for 8” and 9” props

I used some of the ideas/details from my old frame (which is a very good frame, but it would be very expensive to do it from carbon*). So I started drawing a new one on a piece of paper 🙂


Then with the priceless help of my sister, we draw it also digital in a CAD software. That was not an easy process, but it was worth it. And finally today I received my package with the carbon* parts for my new frame. I named it “SG Adventure”. I’m planning to have this new quad always with me for trips and adventures, so I thought it will fit very well.


All the carbon parts weight 120g. It is a bit more compared to the 75g-plywood old frame. But the carbon is much much more durable then the plywood.


All-up weight (without battery) is 585g. The frame is designed to be used with several flight controllers such as my HK MultiWii Megapirate AIO and KK2.0. As KK2.0 and the newer one KK2.1.5 are same size, it will also fit very well. There are also holes for the APM board. The motor holes are for standard 19mm:16mm, as on my Turnigy 2830-11 motors. I already mentioned that there is space on the front for my GoPro Hero 3 camera. The summer is coming, so it is time for some FPV and nice videos 🙂

I will be very happy to hear, what do you think about my new “Adventure” frame. Feel free to comment 😉
